To become a pro, you must first hate painting.
To become a pro, you must first hate painting. 
Here's why.
Alright, all the cool kids write articles, so I figured I might as well go for it. I have a lot of thoughts on stuff, so it works out well.
"Do something you love, and you'll never work a day in your life."
Today someone posted a comment reply on a facebook post of mine saying the above, as a motivational one-liner. I've heard it tons, and its a nice sentiment -- but this time it resonated, I realized I disagree strongly with what it is saying - and that it is the wrong kind of statement to give an aspiring artist. (I know it was meant well, so much love to the commenter of course!)

(Random daily painting of mine, because yay pretty things to look at!)

I've got a tiny bit of experience now, and this is what I think is more true: If you're a freelance artist, a painter of any sort -- and you want to be a successfu
